Aesop's Fables on the Web, iPad, and Android

One of the neat resources that I just plucked from Open Culture's new collection of K-12 resources is the Aesop's Fables interactive book from the Library of Congress. The book is available to read on the Web, on an iPad, and on an Android device. The book contains more than 140 of Aesop's Fables for children. The level of interactivity varies widely depending upon which story you're reading. Some of the stories have truly interactive animations while other simply have a small moving picture accompanying the fable.

Applications for Education
Installing the iPad app or Android app could be great ways to put these classic tales on your students' mobile devices. The iPad app installs quickly just like any other iPad app does. The Android app does not install from the Google Play store. Instead of downloading it from Google Play you have to install it directly from the Library of Congress website.
